E.M.’s Fibbing of the Friday – 1/7/2022

T.G.I.F! I don’t know about all of you, but I am ready for this week to close. I avoided the news all day and kept myself sane for the most part. Have you ever noticed how crazy people get when a new year begins? Maybe it has to do with resolutions or something. It’s like everyone loses their mind because it’s a new year. With the first week behind us after today, Saturday will be great! I hope… Here’s to wishing 😀

Di (Pensitivity101) is hosting Fibbing Friday today, and here are the questions:

1. What is meant by jumping bail?
2. What is a skipping rope?
3. What is a sickly hue?
4. What is cooking the books?
5. What is a microwave?
6. What is meant by passing the buck?
7. What are air kisses?
8. What is meant by shooting one’s mouth off?
9. What does a dentist do?
10. What is a ruff?

My answers are:

1. What is meant by jumping bail?

A person who has been arrested for playing too much Frogger escapes jail by jumping across busy streets and water obstacles with lily pads and logs being the only way to avoid the police snatching you up and locking you up forever. Or you just get hit in traffic and die. Or you can drown when you miss a log or lily pad. It’s quite extensive.

2. What is a skipping rope?

A skipping rope is a magical instrument that immediately allows you to skip into your future self, and it’s kind of like a time machine. However, you have to be careful not to get scrambled up like eggs when you skip through. It’s very dangerous.

3. What is a sickly hue?

A sickly hue is the name given to Hugh Grant when he sings. It sounds quite awful, so be sure to grab earplugs.

4. What is cooking the books?

Cooking the books is using an ancient cake recipe to make books. They all come out rectangular though because the recipe refuses to tell you how to cut the cake. *shrugs*

5. What is a microwave?

A microwave is the tiniest wave of water in the ocean, and the mermaids hide inside of them. That is why you have to be careful when using speed boats in the ocean. 2.5 billion mermaids are slaughtered each year due to poor boat usage.

6. What is meant by passing the buck?

It’s a bachelor party game where each groomsman will put on a pair of antlers and pass a $1 bill around to make a wish for the groom. The antlers make the wish come true, and it has accounted for hundreds and thousands of divorces already because the groomsmen never wanted the groom to marry the girl he chose. Sad…just very sad.

7. What are air kisses?

Air kisses were the sweetest kisses you could get from someone that was leaving on a jet plane…*sings* “Leaving on a jet plane, dunno when I’ll be back again…” Oops, I got distracted for a moment. Anyway…air kisses are banned in airports since Omicron is spreading like wildfire. The airport is against herd immunity.

8. What is meant by shooting one’s mouth off?

See President #45…it will explain everything.

9. What does a dentist do?

It’s a scientist that studies dents. Dents in cars. Dents in buildings. Dents in cellulite. Dents in stories. A dentist is a jack of all trades when it comes to dents. Yep. Dents.

10. What is a ruff?

Have you seen Shang-Chi yet? It’s the headless winged fat dog-like animal that leads them to the hidden village.

Santa’s Christmas Wishes – RXC 211

This Christmas, Santa wants the following things:

  • Stop lighting the fireplace 6 hours before his estimated arrival. He is still treating the wounds from burns on his bum from last year.

  • All mean kids who discovered him last year should be sedated this year by 10 PM North Pole Time. His shins do not heal with way they used to.

  • He hates sugar cookies. Milk makes him gag. With that in mind, he asks Bacon. You can throw together a few tacos to go also!

  • He wants us to stop putting bulbs on the bottom row of the tree. They get caught in his hat, and the noise wakes all of the bad kids that like to kick him in the shins, tie him up, and steal all the other children’s presents in the neighborhood.

  • Candy canes…lots and lots of candy canes. There are not nearly enough people who hang them on the tree, and Santa loves a variety of candy cane choices when he visits your Christmas tree. Warning: Do NOT put plastic candy canes on the tree or he will leave you coal.

  • Last, but not least, he asks that you stop telling your children that Santa is not real. It’s bad for business!

None, Some, or One?

For this week’s Flashback Friday, I am sharing a post that was originally published on May 3, 2017. It was a silly little poem I wrote using a prompt, and it made me giggle when I read it. I did not remember posting it, so it was nice to see how my mind worked back then.

If you have one
You’ve only just begun
You don’t wanna jump the gun
Because we are just beginning the fun

It’s better to have something
Because all of nothing is none
Some of something is some
A lot of many things can be a ton

I think…

Time to run!

Fibbing Friday – Halloweeny Fibs 10/29/2021

Friday fun starts with Fibbing Friday, and this week’s fibbing is of a spooky theme since Halloween is around the corner. I love Halloween, except I call it Samhain. The veil lowers, and it brings about good things for the harvests to come. Let’s get to fibbing *giggles*

  1. Why does garlic repel vampires?

    Garlic has the same effect as water on gremlins. The smell of it makes them bubble and pop out baby bats from their backs.
  2. What do you need to kill a werewolf?

    A lady werewolf…
  3. What is the purpose of a Jack-o-lantern?

    A Jack-o-lantern is supposed to be a portal to bring Jack Skellington to your Halloween parties.
  4. What exactly is a ghoul?

    A ghoul is like a cute little puppy and is full of sunshine. It farts rainbows.
  5. Why can’t vampires enter a home unless invited?

    Because not even vampires can dodge a breaking and entering charge…immortal or not.
  6. Why can’t vampires cross running water?

    It would mess up their really good hair, and their shoes are really expensive.
  7. What does a chupacabra eat?

    Little Debbie snack cakes…
  8. What is the name of the three-headed dog that guards the gates of the underworld?

    Niklaus Mikaelson…he’s in super hybrid form.

    Joan Ferguson, Chucky’s Bride, and Baby Shark
  10. What alcoholic beverage is thought to be the true origin of witches’ brew?

    Tequila…it magically makes your clothes fall off *giggles*

E.M.’s October 1st Fibs

It’s that time again for me to tell my delusional depictions of PCGuyIV and Pensitivity’s Fibbing Friday. It was a really cool cinematic/broadway theme. I hope you all enjoy my fibs *giggles*…because it was nice to take a break from packing and come up with my crazy answers.

  1. Who is standing around a cauldron at the beginning of MacBeth?
    The little girl from that horror movie that always has her hair in her face in the horror movie The Ring.
  2. What happens at the end of Romeo and Juliet?
    The two young lovers ran away with the circus and fed peanuts to elephants for the rest of their lives, until they are both murdered by a chimpanzee with a homicidal tendency.
  3. What was Les Misérables about?
    The life of a woman who was so miserable that she began eating people. Her first victim’s name was Les.
  4. Why did the Phantom wear a mask?
    He took his inspiration from Jim Carrey. They were besties.
  5. Which cat earned the right to go to the Heavyside Lair?
    Grumpy Cat…His face was considered so ugly that it was cute, so he got special privilege.
  6. Chicago wasn’t about women on death row in the 1920s. What was it about?
    Richard Gere’s action of going AWOL from the Navy…
  7. West Side Story was based on which of Shakespeare’s plays?
    Love’s Labour’s Won and Love’s Labour’s Lost – prequel and sequel
  8. Which Disney animated movie turned Broadway musical was inspired by Hamlet?
  9. Sweeny Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street wasn’t about a homicidal barber. What was it about?
    Edward Scissorhands…
  10. Where did The King and I take place?

Fibbing Friday by E.M

This Fibbing Friday was brought to us by Pensitivity101 and PC Guy, and this is my second challenge. The first challenge I did, I found from a fellow blogger, and I like stretching the truth on these posts and using my imagination to come up with answers very far from the truth. I’m an honest person in real life, so these are really fun. Enjoy my lies! *haha*

  1. What is the difference between an earth worm and an ear worm?
    An earthworm is round, blue, with many bumps that look like land masses, while an ear worm is a worm that wiggles up to your ear to tell you all of the secrets from people around you.
  2. What is a Mars Bar?
    It’s a gymnast’s practice equipment to make them spin like they are reaching the gravitational pull of the planet Mars.
  3. What colour is a peanut?
    Purple…duh! They get that way from being ran through a wine press after they have been toasted to paint them with the essence of goodness.
  4. What is meant by dressed up like a dog’s dinner?
    It means that it is filled with the text messages from all the girls who are texting your boyfriend, who is indeed a dog.
  5. What is an orange pippin?
    It’s a dessert found in the deepest rainforest, and it looks like Scotty Pippin when you squeeze the juice out.
  6. What do an owl, pussy cat and five pound note all have in common?
    They are quiet, light, and only come out when there is an apocalyptic threat in the area.
  7. Where would you find a Bunny Girl?
    In a magical forest that opens up only when you are in the back of a wardrobe. It’s said there are lions, minotaur, and witches there as well.
  8. What is the difference between an heir and a hair?
    An heir is a bubble that comes up from wild sea creatures in the Pacific Ocean as they are hiding from the humans passing by, and a hair is a golden needle that will weave the life you have always wished and dreamed about.
  9. What is meant by fringe benefits?
    They are things that sit on the ruffle of lace to make you feel more beautiful.
  10. What is a whimsy?
    It’s the best football play to ever be used on Sunday Night Football, but it can only be used when you have a terrible quarterback.

Festival: WOTD

People swamp in like rats through the sewage

Cups in hand as they brush across each other

As the chords of music grace their ears

The smell of candied sugar whipped to stick

Corn dogs, turkey legs, lemonade

Beer, insanity, but fun

Dancing, living, and enjoying

Singing and chanting

Socialization at its highest point

It’s a festival of spirit

As much as a gathering of people

It’s a celebration of music

It’s a celebration of unity

It’s a celebration of us


The last festival I had attended was in 2011, and it was in Little Rock, Arkansas. My ex-husband and I had went to Edgefest, and it had a huge turnout. With this pandemic, I miss these kinds of gatherings. I met so many great people, and we were packed to the front like marshmallows in a bag. It got a little scary when turkey legs flew into the air because what goes up…must come down. However, it was one of the greatest moments of my life, and I hope we get back to a point to where we get to enjoy life like that again…without risk of pandemic or sickness.

xoxo E.M.

Autumn Finally!

Orange and black colors
Filling my mind with delight
Fake webs hanging above the doors
Loving the season with all of my might

My own Nightmare Before Christmas
As the cold winds blow into the trees
The autumn skies glowing on the brush
The falling leaves brings my heart to appease

The night time brings forth it’s somber tune
Exceptional sounds fill the air at night
As the barn owl hoots at the dark moon
As the coyote’s howl brings us a fright

Jacket weather and the nice cool breeze
No more roasting against the hot sun
A good time to give your loved ones a squeeze
Now is the time for bonfires and fun

The Daily Post:  Word of the Day = Exceptional
